I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Chicago Public Schools (Chicago, IL)

Interview

3 interviews total. The first was a typical get to know you. The second was an interview was with the larger team with more in depth questions. The third was a "performance task" in which you must make a presentation and answer questions about a randomized dataset. The questions asked did not make sense in the context of the data. I asked for clarification in an email, and one of the team members admitted that the questions didn't totally make sense. (Yes, I wish I was making this up - I don't know if that was intentional to try to trick applicants) The interviewer didn't have the courtesy to contact me after the third interview with a decision. After more than a week I contacted them and they informed me that they went with another candidate.
